Running Around Before the Runaway

It is usual that I do some errands including fueling up the truck (and generator gas can), buy groceries and what have you all on payday.

Well, since this payday is the Friday of this long weekend, I decided that I would run around a day early on Thursday, instead.

This seemed like a bad idea, because the oil companies decided to jack up the price of gasoline by about 13 cents a litre, because . . . they could.

So, that meant that I did my running around yesterday after work, with the first stop, you guessed it, my favourite and place that is most reliably the cheapest place in town to buy fuel (a large warehouse store that requires a membership to shop there).

I ended up in the slowest lane and the lineup reminded me of crossing the border into the US when I lived on the coast.

Since this was not delaying me from getting to my campsite, it was not that big a deal. I did manage to get my gasoline at the “cheaper” rate.

This way, I can relax tonight and then as soon as work is finished on Friday, I only have to stop by the bank and then I can literally run for the hills!

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
